Luxemburg Fire train with new airbags

The Luxemburg Fire Department had the opportunity to train on some new equipment earlier this week that can mean the difference between life or death in the future.  On Monday, the firefighters were trained on using new lift airbags. The two high-pressure stackable lift bags makes the Luxemburg Fire Department ready to respond quickly and effectively.  Fire Chief Lew DuChateau explains how the new equipment is more efficient and powerful than the old airbags.



The Luxemburg Fire Department also purchased new regulators, controllers, safely couplers, and hoses. The purchase totaling over $15,000 was made possible by donations made to the department for the past two years.
